This shorter course starts out with the same killer climb as the 25k, then rips right down to the finish. It’s a vertical beast with over 1,100m elevation gain, but is built for speed. This distance is capped at 80 racers.

If 1,100m of elevation gain over 16k seems a little too crazy for one person, split the load with a buddy! Leg 1 - 10k (1,000m ascent, 430m descent), Leg 2 - 6K (130m ascent, 400m descent). Limit of 22 relay teams.
